  • Don’t forget what’s in the root cellar

    Perhaps this can be a reminder of the payoff of “putting up” the garden in spring, summer and fall: We have extended our homegrown eating pleasure into the winter months with some basic preservation methods.  
    If you froze, dried, canned or otherwise preserved fresh fruits and vegetables in 2016, do not forget about them (or horde them for some unreasonable time.)
    First, open the freezer and assess what’s there: blanched Romano beans with some ice crystals forming inside the freezer bag?  Plan a stew for dinner.

  • Specialty seed catalogs deliver quality

    I have learned to be discerning when it comes to catalog shopping.  
    I steer clear of outrageous or cheap deals. I prefer the specialty catalog where expertise reigns, providing us with both a good product and the information to grow it well.  
    I shop locally as much as I can but for some crops we must turn to the catalogs that are filling the mailbox this time of the year.

    A new procedure in ophthalmology surgery (eye surgery) called dropless cataract surgery is being performed at Harrison Memorial Hospital by Dr. David Blandford, HMH Ophthalmologist.
    Cataract is a name given to the natural lens of the eye as it becomes cloudy, resulting in blurred vision. The purpose of the lens is to bend (refract) light rays to help you see. The lens should be clear but, with a cataract, things may look blurry, hazy or less colorful.
